From the below link:

http://www.howtogeek.com/116297/how-to-recover-an-encrypted-home-directory-on-ubuntu/?PageSpeed=noscript

I did the following as seen in my terminal output: It worked as you can see:


ppermint@peppermint ~ $ sudo ecryptfs-recover-private
INFO: Searching for encrypted private directories (this might take a while)...
INFO: Found [/media/peppermint/home/.ecryptfs/paulgrie/.Private].
Try to recover this directory? [Y/n]: y
INFO: Found your wrapped-passphrase
Do you know your LOGIN passphrase? [Y/n] y

Passphrase:
Inserted auth tok with sig  into the user session keyring
INFO: Success!  Private data mounted at [/tmp/ecryptfs.jrJK4Yc9
